Rash on the side of the knee

Posted , 2 users are following.

I've had this on the skin on the side of my knee for about two years now. It doesn't itch, and has been getting paler with time.

    Well as it doesnt itch and the redness is fading, it is not typical of dermatitis. Best left alone. Obviously if more patches appear and its bothering you go back to your doctor. Not typical of psoriasis either.

    I thought it may have been a subcutaneous bleed which is slowly healing but they often leave a firm patch under the skin.
